Superheroes choose to wear masks to protect their identity, so they can lead a double life without getting caught or putting their loved ones in danger from the big evil monsters. At JustFamilyFun, we have created a bunch of superhero masks so you can lead your secret life and protect the world at the same time. We have loads of free printables such as our batman mask template for you to try out now.
This is a role-playing resource that will boost children’s confidence whilst letting their imagination run free. We have ten designs to choose from featuring all the popular superheroes such as Batman, Spiderman and Captain America.
Each design comes with paper straps for the mask, however, if you prefer to use something a bit sturdier we suggest using elastic string to make the mask sturdier for wearing.
Batman Superhero Mask
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, Batman!
First up there is the Batman mask template. Batman is one of the most popular and famous superheroes of today. He is the secret identity of very rich businessman Bruce Wayne. This crime busting hero lives in the city of Gotham plagued with crime, greed and corruption with his trusty sidekick Robin.
Unlike most of the other superheroes Batman was human to start with and then built his powers over time. He is often mistaken as a villain by the public because of his dark colours but he is never afraid to go above and beyond to do the right thing. To be Batman you must:
- Be super strong
- Be clever
- Be very passionate about things
- Want to be or are very rich
Our batman mask printable is perfect for all those wannabe dark hood superheroes. It features the cat-like eyes and ears as well as not forgetting Batman’s logo on the forehead. You can make it even cooler by adding your own badge to the mask.
Captain America Superhero Mask
Next up we have the Captain America mask template. Captain America, the alter ego of Steve Rogers, is a patriotic created superhero who fights the Axis Powers of World War II and was the most popular character during the wartime period. He joined the military to aid the US government’s efforts during the war. Near the end of the war, he was trapped in ice and survived in suspended animation until he was revived in modern time.
Captain America has no superhuman powers although as a result of Super Solider Serum and Vitaray treatment he has transformed from a weak young man to a body of peak perfection. Captain America has lots of different superhero qualities which are:
- Be strong
- Have speed
- Have healing powers
- Be able to get out of tricky situations
- High stamina
Our Captain America mask template printable has been created in a bright blue colour with the letter A on the forehead. We have left white stripes on the mask for you to colour in with red or any other colour of your choosing.
Deadpool Superhero Mask
“You’re still here? It’s over. Go home!”
Moving onto our Deadpool mask template. Deadpool is a happy mercenary highly trained in martial arts and swordmanship. The superhero was given accelerated healing powers which make him pretty much immortal through the Weapon X programme.
Because Deadpool was diagnosed with cancer at the time of the Weapon X programme his cancerous cells regrew just as quickly as his normal cells, making his entire body look heavily scarred which is why he chooses to wear the full body suit and mask all the time.
Did you know? This red-suited superhero started off as a supervillain to the New Mutants, a team of teenaged X-Men, but eventually became an antihero who fought alongside Wolverine, the X-Men and even several Avengers.
Deadpool is a very happy and talkative person who loves to use his sarcasm to come across as funny. He often finds himself in difficult situations with the enemies and prefers to fight his way out of anything using weapons and object he has found around him. He has a lot of qualities which you may have:
- Good sense of humour
- Like to do fun things and go on adventures
Our free Deadpool mask template has been created with the classic red with black covering the eyes. All you will need is to find a red suit to match and you are good to go!
“I go by many names Earthian, but I’m sure the one that most know me by is Gamora, the deadliest woman in the whole galaxy.”
Next up we have our first female superhero Gamora. She is a member of Guardian’s of the Galaxy having escaped her previous life as an assassin after she was forcibly adopted by Thanos after he eliminated half of her planet’s race which included her mother. For the next two decades, she served as a cybernetically enhanced warrior who serves Thanos on his quest to erase half of all life in the universe.
Gamora was in many ways a true warrior at heart. She is strong-willed, determined and resourceful. She carried herself with dignity like a true superhero, but also became a bit of a lone wolf because of her upbringing. She is slow to make friends and doesn’t trust others easily. Here are some of the green coloured superhero personality traits.
Our Gamora face mask is designed with her green colour skin and edgy black hair with the funky red dip dye. It has even been made with the contouring of her face. The fun part which this female superhero mask is that you can change your lipstick colour to whatever mood you are feeling like a true superpower.
Hulk Superhero Mask
“Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry”
We couldn’t forget making everyone’s favourite big green superhero – the Hulk! Bruce Banner was a top scientist for the military who was working on a gamma bomb, a weapon of massive destructive power. During a test of the gamma bomb, Bruce witness a young male teenager called Rick Jones who had entered the test site. Bruce rushed to help the young man and in pushing Rick into a trench, exposed himself to the rays of the gamma bomb.
The result of this exposure would be to transform gentle Bruce Banner into the destructive monster known as The Incredible Hulk.
When Bruce turns into the Hulk he becomes an unstoppable beast with unlimited strength, power and destruction. He is also able to leap great distances at very fast speeds. And because of his size there is very little things that can physically hurt him when explains his fast healing powers. Do you have what it takes to be the Hulk? You must:
- Super strength
- Superhuman speed
- Can jump very far distances
- Like to destroy objects
- To enjoy science and experiments is an added bonus!
Our hulk mask template is a free printable that has been designed to resemble the angry Incredible Hulk’s green face with his short black spikey hair. All you need it to grab your muscly green costume and you are ready to scare the public, but remember it has to be for good!
“I am Iron Man”
Next up is our best dressed Marvel superhero Ironman. Tony Stark was an industrialist and genius engineer who suffers a severe heart injury during a kidnapping in which his captors attempt to force him to build a massively destructive weapon. He instead creates a powered suit of armour to save his life and escape captivity. He later decides to use the suit to protect the world as Iron Man.
Ironman can build anything out of nothing. He is the ultimate visionary, inventor and entrepreneur. He is strongly wilful, but doesn’t work well with any authority other than his own, and will enthusiastically tear down just about anyone who challenges him.
- Open to the future
- Good at problem-solving
- Analytical thinking
We have created an easy superhero mask of the iron man mask. It has been designed with the red helmet and yellow mask. To make it different and unique to you why not try adding different pieces of your favourite pieces to build like spare Lego pieces. You could also make a matching iron-like weapon to go with the costume!
Spiderman Superhero Mask
“With great power, comes great responsibility”
We have saved one the most historic and well-known superheroes that always features on our TV screens and comics to last – and that is Spiderman. Peter Park is an American teenager, a poor sickly orphan bitten by a radioactive spider. As a result of the bite, he gains superhuman strength, speed and agility along with the cool ability to climb the walls and shoot spiderwebs.
Many inspire to be like Spidermen because he is truly the definition of a teenager leading a secret double life. He was unpopular at school by his peers as Peter, but in awe by the newspapers and the world as Spiderman.
You would think that as the greatest superhero of all time you would need A LOT of traits to be like Spiderman but actually we think you have the right qualities. Spiderman is:
- Like climbing walls
- Like forming relationships to do good
- Quiet and secretive
- Like spiders
We have made the perfect Spiderman mask printable for you to create your own double life fighting crime. All you need to do is stick the straps to the mask and make your own cobweb shooter and you are good to go. Will you decide to have a sidekick or are you working alone?
Superman Superhero Mask
“Truth, Justice and the American Way”
Superman was born on the planet Krypton and was given the name Kal-El at birth. As a baby, his parents sent him to Earth in a small spaceship moments before Krypton was destroyed. His ship landed in the American countryside, near the fictional town of Smallville. He was found and adopted by farmers Jonathan and Martha Kent, who named him Clark Kent.
Clark developed various superhuman abilities, such as incredible strength and impervious skin. His adoptive parents advised him to use his abilities for the benefit of humanity and the community, and he decided to fight crime as a vigilante. To protect his privacy, he changes into a colourful costume and uses the alias “Superman” when fighting crime.
Superman demonstrates a resolutely noble personality. He’s gentle, kind-hearted and selfless. He has a firm knowledge of what is right and wrong in society and has a great ability to act decisively in a crisis. He loves to maintain relationships and friendships with not only superheroes, but also public citizens. Are you the next Superman?
- Always looking to fix things
Our Superman mask printable has been designed to protect the eyes with a bright blue mask. You could stick it on a piece of paper and create a full face mask if you want your whole face to remain a secret! It is embossed with the iconic red and yellow Superman logo on the forehead too, so everyone knows exactly which superhero you are.
“I knew it!”
Our penultimate superhero is the handsome Thor. He is one of the great problematic characters in comic book history. He is born to the king of mythological gods. He is the Norse God of Thunder and is a religious figure. Disabled doctor Donald Blake goes on vacation to Norway and runs afoul of an invading party of stone men from Saturn. He flees into a dark cave, finds a walking stick and strikes it against a rock. He is then suddenly transformed into Thor.
Thor has super strength and is never seen to be vulnerable. He can control the weather – cool right? He also carries a very powerful hammer called Mjolnir which can fire pure thunder, energy or simply throw it at people. We all want to be Thor and to do that you must:
- Be very strong
- Like to control the weather
- Have an interest in Greek good
- Very fast and speedy
- Know how to hide
We have created the perfect Thor mask template for you. It has been designed with room for you to add your own cool features. It looks like the Viking helmet and you can add your own superhero logo to the forehead.
Wonder Woman Superhero Mask
And finally we have the powerful Wonder Woman. She is the founding member of the Justice League. Wonder Woman’s background is quite confusing as it has been changed. In the Bronze Age origin story it was written that she was sculpted from clay by her mother Queen Hippolyta and was given life as an Amazon, along with superhuman powers as gifts by the Greek gods. In recent years, her background changed and written so that she is the biological daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, jointly raised by her mother and her aunts Antiope and Menalippe.
We chose to do a Wonder Woman mask because of her characteristics. She is a compassionate, caring, stubborn and highly competitive immortal Amazon. She is a born warrior and tries to avoid conflict but if press will engage in a battle and on occasion lose herself in the pleasure of battle. Wonder Woman is fearless and focused on her objectives. She will not hesitate to break the law if it’s for the greater good and is determined to face the consequences.
We believe that it is important for young girls and women to aspire to be like Wonder Woman. You must be:
- Kind and caring
- Determined and focussed
- Loyal and loving
- Prepared for battle
If you have any of those traits then this Wonder Woman face mask DIY activity is definitely for you. We have created the mask with the iconic yellow tiara on her forehead and with black hair, but do not fear we suggest putting on different wigs to switch up her hair and try some other colours.
And there you go there are plenty of masks to choose from! All you have to do is click on each link from the list above, download the file and print it off. Once you have a paper copy, cut out all the shapes and start sticking them together. Each mask has been designed to suit all faces of shape and sizes and you are allowed to download as many as you want.
Remember you are more than welcome to use elastic bands instead. Stick a hole on each side of the mask and tie each end of the string to the mask with a secure knot.
